Every Video Game I Played in 2021

Last year, I posted a list of “Games I have played in quarantine (so far),” which is cute, looking back and imagining a time when I thought the pandemic might someday end. I thought it might be fun to post one of these lists again, but this time in the context of a concrete time frame that makes any sense at all: a calendar year.

This is a comprehensive game of every game I played during the course of 2021, as kept in my trusty Hobonichi Techo, and in accordance with my short but strict Rules of Recording. A game gets recorded if it meets these criteria:

  • Has not been recorded this year, AND
    • Is a new game I am starting fresh, OR
    • Is an old game I have made progress in

Before we begin, a small key:
Games I completed in 2021 are bold.
Previously played games are italicized.
